Elk Creeks Watershed Conservation Plan
[33 Pa.B. 1370]
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (Department), Bureau of Recreation and Conservation, has approved the Elk Creeks Watershed Conservation Plan (Plan) and is placing the Big Elk Creek, the watershed and all tributaries and the Little Elk Creek covered in the Plan in Chester County on the Pennsylvania Rivers Conservation Registry (Registry).
The Brandywine Conservancy submitted the Plan and other required information to gain Registry status.
After review of the Plan and other information, the Department has determined that the Keystone Rivers Conservation Program (Program) requirements have been satisfied and places the following on the Registry:
1. The watershed area of Big Elk Creek (Chester County) from the confluence of the East Branch of Big Elk Creek and the West Branch of Big Elk Creek with the main stem of Big Elk Creek to the Pennsylvania/Maryland border--57.0 square miles.
2. The watershed of the West Branch of Big Elk Creek (Chester County) from the headwaters to its confluence with the main stem of Big Elk Creek--10.3 square miles.
3. The watershed of the East Branch of Big Elk Creek (Chester County) from the headwaters to its confluence with the main stem of Big Elk Creek--15.9 square miles.
4. The watershed of the Little Elk Creek (Chester County) from the headwaters to the Pennsylvania/Maryland border--13.4 square miles.
This action becomes effective March 15, 2003. Projects identified in the Plan become eligible for implementation, development or acquisition grant funding through the Program.
